My story

[p]On September 17th I shall be riding in the [url=https://london-monaco.cc]London to Monaco[/url] charity ride in support of [url=https://london-monaco.cc/charity/]The Blue Marine Foundation[/url][/p][p]The health of the oceans are vital to the well being of us all and the generations to come. [/p][p]The oceans cover 71 percent of the Earth's surface and contain 97 percent of the Earth's water.[/p][p]Less than 1 percent of the Earth's water is fresh water, and 2-3 percent is contained in glaciers and ice caps.[/p][p]The oceans contain 99 percent of the living space on the planet.[/p][p]If the ocean's total salt content were dried, it would cover the continents to a depth of 5 feet.[/p][p]My entire working life and a huge amount of my leisure time has been sustained by marine activities and the yachting and water sports industries. The ocean sustains me quite directly but it also sustains us all. [/p][p]I delight in the idea of giving back to the seas and oceans for all the support, joy and nourishment they have provided to me. [/p][p]Creating marine reserves and developing sustainable models of fishing seems, to me, an obvious thing to do but actually making this a reality is no easy task when dealing with the many and varied commercial interests involved.[/p][p]The Blue Marine Foundation have demonstrated their ability to truly affect positive change and have a fascinating portfolio of [url=https://www.bluemarinefoundation.com/projects/]projects[/url].[/p][p]I hope you'll join me and [url=https://uk.virginmoneygiving.com/ChrisJackson63]support[/url] their efforts further[/p][p][i]Blue Marine Foundation (BLUE) exists to restore the ocean back to a healthy state.[/i][/p][p][i]Our focus is combatting overfishing by creating marine reserves, establishing new models of sustainable fishing and restoring marine habitats. BLUE’s aim is to see at least 10% of ocean under protection by 2020, with a long-term aim of 30% protected.[/i][/p][p][i]The London to Monaco cycle ride engages with riders and sponsors to support its mission by raising awareness and funds for BLUE’s global conservation projects.[/i][/p][p][i]Funds raised have supported projects on Ascension Island, St Helena, the Maldives, Aeolian Islands, the Solent, Lyme Bay and in the Mediterranean where we are combatting plastic pollution with the Prince Albert II of Monaco Foundation.[/i][/p][p][i]In just 8 years, BLUE has helped protect over 4 million square kilometres of ocean.[/i][/p][p][br][/p]
